Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluation (BBSE) (Refer page 3)
      Semen Morphology: This is carried out by a registered vet accredited to examine semen samples.  Semen mor-
      phology is not normally undertaken in semen testing throughout New Zealand.  However it became apparent to
      us as breeders that the whole picture of bull fertility was not being presented to those purchasing breeding bulls.
      Morphology testing of semen involves collection of a semen sample and its complete analysis by microscope
      inspection and evaluation.  This can not be done race side at time of collection.  Any bull that achieves Semen
      Morphology of 70% Normal is considered quite adequate for all breeding purposes, single sire or multiple sire
      mating situations.  All bulls in this catalogue have a semen morphology of 70% normal or greater as of the 5th
      April 2019\. Please feel free to discuss this issue with us on sale day or before.
      Buyer Responsibility:  As breeders of bulls we can now guarantee your bull is fertile at the date of purchase.
      However, it should be noted that the fertility of a bull can vary according to his condition, his health and general
      well being.  As his new owner it pays to look after your new bull, feed him adequately, give him access to good
      water and keep him in good health.  Any major deviation could render him partially infertile or completely infer-
      tile.  Its up to you as his new owner to keep him fertile and do a BBSE before mating each year to pick up any
      problems that may have arisen.
      New Bull Arrival: Bulls can become upset and excited in the sale and delivery process.  They are subjected to
      strange yards, noises, loss their mates, different people and handling methods, trucking, unloading, new pad-
      docks and different feed and water.  This can upset animals which are normally very quiet.  When a new bull
      arrives home, unload him at the yards into a group of steers or cows for company.  follow this process and your
      bull will settle into his new environment well.
